Broward VA Outpatient Facility

Sunrise, FL

The Broward County Veterans Administration Outpatient Medical Facility includes 83,000 SF of ambulatory care, dental facilities, minor outpatient operatory modules, recovery rooms, and radiology and audiology suites. Zyscovich was retained when ownership of this project changed during project design and construction, and the need for redesign, design verification and project management became necessary to complete the project, which had been delayed for over four years. Zyscovich fast tracked the project and completed work estimated to take nine months within a five month period.

The firm’s services included architectural design, construction documentation, permitting, and construction administration. The work included site and construction verification and redesign of various interior and shell components. The firm also analyzed and addressed deficiencies in space layout, mechanical, plumbing and the building envelope in order to ensure compliance with VA technical requirements, including those found in the physical security design manual, VA Barrier Free Design Guide, AIA Guidelines for Construction of Healthcare Facilities, and other VA technical design manuals. This process included multiple design workshop meetings with various VA Department Heads to update the design to meet current needs and facility requirements. The facility design was adapted to incorporate the necessary level of flexibility to achieve long term viability of the facility to meet the VA’s ever-evolving needs. The firm produced drawings for this project using the VA National CAD Standard Application Guidelines. The final design employed multiple energy efficient components to create a highly effective facility. These components included mechanical, lighting, extra insulation, ice creation and storage, and significant natural light.
